for the wrong reasons. mostly, the part of massachusetts where i'm fro didn't get any attention. when i was 12 years old, it got a lot, a lot of very positive reasons. it is because of this guy, paul tsongas. he had gone into local politics and in 1992, he was running for president. this is just when i was starting to get interested in politics. i didn't know much about the difference between the two parties. i knew it was really cool that someone that lived a few miles from our house was running for the white housing, the most important job in the world. every afternoon, the lowell sun would land on our doorstep. i would devour the information on the trail. i really wanted him to win. he won new hampshire and maryland and bill clinton overwhelmed him. there were a lot of reasons that he beat tsongas that year. one thing i knew, clinton had gotten rough and pushed the line. i was mad at bill clinton. i'll admit, i held a bit of a grudge. fast forward to 2007. i am writing a column i am not doing tv. i am a nobody. i am in thousands of dollars for debt. with hillary clinton setting out to run f

. the senate was in session. ironically, the 31-year-old senator from massachusetts, ted kennedy was presiding at that moment. guest: that is right. as many of your viewers know, being the presiding officer is more of a chore than a position of power. the power in the senate resides with the two floor leaders. being in the chair is pretty ceremonial. sign -- islways is a assigned to a freshman. he was one of 10 a freshman in that class. he was the youngest of the bunch at 31 years old. hort strahl s and was presiding at the lunch hour. as was typical, there was no roll call vote that day. they started preliminary debate on legislation the following week. there was some pulmonary debate going on. this was 20 minutes after the shots were fired. a messenger came in and informed senator kennedy as the -- i had never seen that before. that was a moving bit of footage. it happened just like that. he slipped out of the room. a general hubbub ensued. a guy named winston from vermont was giving a speech about library construction. said, woulde morse the senator yield for an emergency. that got everyone
of massachusetts and boston households. i covered the kennedy family throughout my career. they had a cautious choice to have no representation at the ceremony today. they don't like to talk about the assassination of kennedy. you mentioned jean kennedy smith at arlington to. ethyl was there on wednesday. look at this one, caroline kennedy, the surviving daughter of jack kennedy's family, she moved to tokyo recently to become the u.s. ambassador, and make no mistake about the timing. she went there just in recent days. she wanted to be out of the country and starting her new job so she didn't have to be part of this. but i will say here in dallas, you mentioned, they had the reputation of the city of hate. it's been a hard time for the city and the city deserves credit for the respectful ceremony despite some adverse weather conditions. >> it was beautiful. thank you so much in dallas. from the president to the former first lady, jacqueline kennedy. she was known really around the world for her exquisite taste in fashion. but it was that pink suit, one of her favorites, and she was wearing tha
what the president could have done, meaning looking at massachusetts, seeing what the plan of massachusetts did. he noted that the president could have seen that people would actually be kicked off their insurance policies, that there was a lot to learn from the states having control including the biggest lesson of all, he said the president should learn to be honest. take a listen. >> obamacare barely made it through washington, as you know. there is no question in my mind that had the president been truthful and told the american people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket, had he told them that at the time it was going through washington there would have been such a hew and cry against it, it would not have passed. >> mitt romney goes on to say what was good for massachusetts was not good for everyone. if he actually said some of you are going to be kicked off your insurance we wouldn't be at the place we are right now. some people are saying look at the website. every night it goes down, it's not secure. the other
is that lyndon johnson, john mccormick of massachusetts, who is the speaker of the house, he is next in line. we were told a few minutes ago the u.s. -- there were four jet airplanes at andrews air force base ready for takeoff for technet -- for texas. and perhaps they only have. presumably, to bring numbers of the party back here, and/or to take members of the kennedy family to texas. details as yet, but i assume mr. johnson will return to washington immediately and will take over the late resident kennedy's duties. that is about all of the detail we have at the moment. as reported earlier, senator edward kennedy, the president's brother, was presiding over the senate in lyndon johnson's absence. the vice president, when he leaves his job in the senate can turn to gavel over to any member. in this case, senator edward theedy was presiding when word came of the shooting. at that time, it was not known whether the president was dead or alive. a reporter in the press gallery upstairs overlooking the senate gave the war to a senate page, who then went down and told senators on the floor -- gave a w

kennedy of massachusetts, who yesterday announced his entrance into the race for the democratic presidential nomination. he said under no circumstances will he accept the nomination for vice president. senator kennedy is the front-runner in most of the public opinion polls. as a member of the senate labor committee, he is certain to play a leading part in drafting legislation to deal with the steel dispute, if it is not settled. senator kennedy began his career in the house of representatives at the age of 29. he was elected to the senate in 1952 and re-elected with the largest majority in the history of his state. he is the winner of a pulitzer prize for his book, "profiles in courage." and now seated around the press table, ready to interview senator kennedy are richard wilson of the coles publications, john steel of time and life magazines, james reston of "the new york times," and lawrence e. spivak, our regular member of the "meet the press" panel. now, senator kennedy, if you are ready, we will start the questions with mr. spivak. >> in the announcement of your candidacy y
